First time to rent a condo instead of a hotel room. Loved it! Perfect location. Very quiet. Balcony and double sliding glass doors from both living area and master bedroom was heaven. Only thing that we did not get to do that we wanted was swim in the pool. The weather was perfect 81-84 degrees but the pool water was too cold. Pool is heated at certain times of year. We were there in October and it was not heated yet. Nice decor and clean. One bedroom had older carpet and bedspread but rest of the condo had tile and was spotless. Unit equipped with everything needed. Staff very helpful and responsive. We would stay here again and hope to next year.

3 yrs ago we came and stayed at surf side shores and was so happy with the rental. The rental from this visit was so outdated. The entire condo needs a make over. The master bath tub had a leak and apparently was patched with some kind of putty. There was hair stuck to that. The bath tub filled up with water while showering so that was gross. The carpet and rugs in the place are so old and nasty. The patio furniture was awful and made it so unenjoyable. The kitchen was older and not the cleanest. I just think for the cost it was not worth it. Sorry??

Room was very dirty. We had to clean the floors the first day. There was trash under the sofa sleeper.

Overall a good stay! A few things need attention. We were long term renters and found the kitchen lacking in several areas. There are no matching lids for the pots and pans, limited silverware and beverage glasses. There was not a knife to cut with but steak knives. Ultimately we needed to wash dishes by hand rather than use the dishwasher as there was not enough silverware or glasses. The blankets for both bedrooms need to be replaced. One has rips and the other has many stains. Although the condo was clean the furniture had a sweat odor. Not sure if that was from the mattress on the sofa as we did not use it as a sleeper. Bender was quick to have service people fix a problem with the fridge. It was repaired the same day they were notified. We would stay here again! But, we would bring some of our own kitchen items.

The condo location was perfect! Beautiful view from balcony. The condo itself needs some attention. The front door was extremely hard to open and hung on the floor. $125.00/cleaning fee was not utilized very well. I would def be hiring a new cleaning employee. The floors were very dirty, furniture very dusty, and a mildew smell was strong upon arrival! I had to sweep & mop before unpacking and also went to buy some Febreeze to spray everything and get rid of the stail smell! If I weren't so tired upon arrival, I would have had the condo cleaned again since I'm sure the previous vacationers had to pay the $125.00/cleaning fee! Advice to Bender/Condo owner, if your going to charge &125.00 for a service please make sure that service is being completed! First impressions are very valuable!

great location, excellent grounds and facilities, nice family time. Property was not available on time - waited until 5:45pm and the condo was not clean to our standards. Floor sticky and my wife washed the floor day 1.

We LOVED our stay! The condo was very clean, well stocked kitchen and loved the decor! Beach access could not have been any more perfect! This was our first trip to Gulf Shores and we fully intend to go back often and we will want to stay in the exact same condo because it was so great! Folks at the realty office were extremely nice and the helpful! We loved the pool area and loved that the condo had security at the gate! Excellent place to stay!

The condos were OK as far as cleanliness, they were comfortable a great view. But the first night we were there we had taken our beach chairs, foldable wagon and Canopy off the beach and left it by the pool until we went to eat. We were late getting back and forgot to pick it up. Well someone decided to just help themselves to our stuff and took it home with them. We talked to management and guards about it. They did not seem to care. They said we shouldnt have left it. That happened first night we were there so kinda put a damper on our vacation that about $300 worth of beach stuff was stolen.

FIRST WEEK WEATHER WAS IDEAL FOR GOLF AND FISHING. 10 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL. NEXT WEEK STILLN GOOD FOR TOURING AROUND AND FERRY RIDE OVER TO DAUPHIN ISLAND

Condo was nice and big. Great view! The pool is awesome! And nice short walk to the ocean! (Some places have a big beach and its a hike to get all your things out there close to the water). We had a problem and the management company got someone out ASAP and it was fixed quickly! Easy check in and out even with a late arrival. Good experience all around!

I loved the location and the condo. Was very pleased with every aspect except the floor was so sandy even prior to us going to the beach thus the sand was from a previous guest. Also, the pillows on the master bed smelled like dog **** no symbolism here. Actually smelled like it! Bed was ok when we replaced the pillows with ones from the other bedroom. Also would have been really nice to have had two loungers to sun on the deck. Even with these issues I'll be back to this condo.

Bender Realty made everything easy. I was very hesitant about this unit after reading past reviews. However, upon entering the place was noticably clean. Not the best furnishings or kitchen utensils but still an overall descent condominium. The sofabed definitely needs to be replaced.
Condo needs to be up dated, master bedroom bed had sand in it and sheets don't fit bed at all. TV in spared bedroom goes to black screen after 10 seconds of being turned on, but you can still hear sound. Tub in master bedroom has been patched and closet in the master bath room the doors are broken. The condo was not clean at all, floors were dirty, the stove had crumbs all over it, hair was in the tub, and parking was horriable. Now for the postive, it is not a bad walk to the beach and view it great of the beach.
This is a very centrally located property in the heart of Gulf Shores. The view is spectacular and the location can't be beat. We were a little disappointed in the condo itself. There were multiple things wrong with the unit that were very inconvenient to us. First off, it was just "ok" clean. Now my standards are higher than most so I'll let that one go. The sink stopper didn't work so we couldn't wash dishes by hand, had to go buy dishwasher detergent because that was our only option. 3 closet doors were broken, one of which was in the master bathroom that hung open so we ran into it every time we went to the bathroom. Multiple drawer pulls were broken, this didn't bother me much, but I expected higher quality I guess. The ceiling fan sounded like it was going to fall from the ceiling. I called Bender about this one and they came to fix it immediately but we were still without a fan for 3 of the 7 nights. I was impressed with their attentiveness to this matter though. Overall, we had a nice stay. The condo was liveable, I just expected better. Too many broken items in the unit for the price we paid in my opinion. However, the zero entry pool was such a big hit with the kids that it made up for the poor condo. I did really like Bender and will rent from them again. If I had to rate Bender 0-10, I would give them a 10. I would give the condo itself a 5.
Overall we enjoyed our stay. Our room could have been cleaner. Bedspreads were dirty and stained. Decorative pillows had stain and rips. Elevator is right outside of the room. With a toddler and a 3 month old I wish we would have known this before booking this particular room. The biggest dissapointment was the pool was not open at all the day we checked in and didn't open until lunch the next day. It was suppose to opens at 8:30 each morning and never opened before 10am. We had our 2 year old who loves a pool so we were unsatisified with that.
